‘Let It be Roberta’ is the first album in 8 years from the soul star.

Roberta Flack is a neighbour of Yoko Ono’s. She lives in the Dakota Building in New York, the building where John Lennon was murdered in 1980.

Yoko has given her thumbs up to her neighbour’s project. “With this collection, Roberta is adding a woman’s voice of fun and joy and, again, making people realize how universal these songs are,” she said.

“My passion for this project comes from the magical genius of the greatest songwriters of all time. Love, inspiration, friendship and my own life’s lessons come together when I sing the songs they created. I am honoured to be a part of the fabulous legacy of the Beatles.” Roberta said.

Roberta Flack first made her name when Clint Eastwood used her song ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ in his movie ‘Play Misty For Me’ in 1972. It became a world-wide number one hit.

‘Let It Be Roberta’ will be released through 429 Records and Universal on February 3.

The tracklisting is:

Track Listing:
1. Hey Jude
2. I’m Looking Through You
3. If I Fell
4. We Can Work it Out
5. I Should Have Known Better
6. The Long and Winding Road
7. Here There And Everywhere
8. Come Together
9. And I Love Him
10. Let It Be
11. Yesterday
12. Oh Darling
